Course Description:

Everything that the eyes see consists of colors, including black, white and shades of grey. Join us for an inspiring hands-on experience as we explore the vast world of colors. We’ll begin with a playful exercise to explore colors in a spontaneous way. With art works for inspiration, we’ll gain an understanding of how color relationships work by making the color wheel as well as different color groupings using worksheets.

In the sessions that follow, we will explore the versatile dry mediums of colored pencils, crayons and pastels, and practice hands-on techniques like blending, smudging, overlapping, rubbing, scratching and layering. Each session will focus on one medium as we learn new skills and create a vibrant piece of art.

A materials list will be sent before the course starts. You will be provided with some materials, for which a $5.00 fee is payable at the first session.
